The Union Bank of California Tower is a 15-story office building located on Broadway and Washington Streets, in the heart of Portland’s business and hotel districts. The tower, designed by the firm Anshen and Allen of San Francisco, has an irreplaceably strong presence on Broadway. The most prominent feature of the Union Bank of California is its exposed service core, clad in light gray slate with a greenish tint. It is said that the slate was quarried from the same area in Wales as the stone used in Stonehenge.
The building is owned by both the Goodman family and Melvin Mark Companies, and has approximately 200,000 square feet of office space as well as 339 below grade parking stalls, which are available on a 24/7 basis. Major tenants include the Union Bank of California’s Oregon headquarters, Pacific Interpreters, Oregon Anesthesiology, as well as numerous telecom companies, as a result of the building’s ideal location abutting the CenturyLink and AT&T switch stations.
